Learning Day 2019You’re Invited to Learning Day, a Day of Learning, Serving and Inspiration, on Friday, February 15, 2019.

This year, Learning Day will continue with the campus model, providing increased variety for learning, camaraderie and service opportunities on East, Osceola and West Campuses. New this year, for our campus model, Learning Day will also feature an afternoon keynote presentation from Claude Steele, an American social psychologist and a professor of psychology at Stanford University.

Each campus has a special lineup of personal and professional development workshops, as well as service learning opportunities.

Employees must attend the event at their home campus or a campus within their region. Winter Park employees should attend the East Campus event. Lake Nona and Poinciana employees should attend the Osceola Campus event. Global, Professional and Continuing Education and District Office employees may participate on a campus of their choice.

Learning Day is considered a work day, and all full-time employees are required to attend. Full-time employees who do not attend should complete a certificate of absence (COA) using either vacation or personal time (staff - 8 hours of leave; faculty - 7 hours of leave). Full-time employees will be paid for a full day of work, even if volunteer or scheduled events end early. Non-exempt employees should adjust their work schedules, so they can attend the full day. If a non-exempt employee works over 40 hours within any work week, the employee must be paid overtime. Part-time employees are invited and encouraged (not required) to attend; and should adjust their schedules accordingly within the week as to not exceed their scheduled hours.

During the event, be sure to share your experiences and photos by posting to social media using the hashtag, #OurValencia. This is a great way to share your experiences with your colleagues and showcase what you love about Valencia College.
